with governor mitt romney and plan to do so because they love their country and are downfright frightened at the direction we are headed under this president's failed policies. i will check in with governor sarah palin about the controversial revenge vote strategy. and later on newt gingrich will join me. let's look at that the momentum seems to be on the side of team romney. a series of polls out of a number of swing states. first we start in colorado according to it the latest rasmussen survey romney is leading obama 50 to 47%. the governor finds himself on top in the unlikely swing state of minnesota. he leads there 46-45. and then there is michigan where the obama campaign is relentlessly spread lies about governor romney's position on the gm bailout and propaganda there has not worked and the governor is now tied with president obama and then, of course, the great state of ohio where the latest polls show that romney and the president are in a dead heat. and on the eve of mitt romney's planned visit to pennsylvania, a "tribune review" survey shows that both candidates are now locked
romney has 47.3% the new york times 538 blog says that if the election were held today, the president would win 303 electoral votes and romney would win 235. 270 are needed to win the white house. the times blog gives the president an 81% chance of winning the election. romney has a 19% chance. and as of tonight, 25 million people have already voted but long lines are creating a serious situation in some parts of florida. yes, florida all over again. some people are waiting three hours or more to vote and we will be asking why governor rick scott in florida is refusing to extend hours as his predecessors have done. but we start with tonight's lead. the closer. just four days to go and president obama is sprinting to the finish line with a passionate pitch to ohio voters and he's doing so by dismantling governor romney's rationale in this race one line of the obama argument, i am the guy you know. >> after four years as president, you know me. you may not agree with every decision i've made, you may be frustrated sometimes at the pace of change, but you know that i say what i mean and
. the north, midwest and west back obama. the south is with romney, or is against obama. you can see this division as it works its way down from southwest pennsylvania, including part of ohio, down through west virginia. you see it in the agitation that romney and his forces are working in their ads and speeches. donald trump, who says is president is an illegal immigrant, now doing robocalls for romney. john sununu keeps calling the president lazy and un-american. and topping it off, we heard romney out here in ohio today saying the president is bent on, get this, revenge. let's begin tonight with my interview with vice president biden. i started with that high octane issue of auto production right here in ohio. >> thank you, mr. vice president, for this time. here we are in ohio. what do you make of this republican ad that's been out there running for romney saying that chrysler is going to take jeep out of this state and send it to china? >> here are the people right in this state, toledo and other places, just back up on their feet, jeep is hiring people and they put out an ad sa
. but then there is the state of indiana. "fox news" now projects governor mitt romney will win the state of indiana which president obama did win four years ago. that's a turnover. 5% of the votes in but the model suggests to us it is good gh to mitt romney according to the "fox news" decision team has won the state of indiana. "fox news" also projects governor romney will win in the bluegrass state kentucky with 4% of all precincts reporting. 2/3 of all voters are voting "fox news" ney and projects romney wins kentucky. outh too close to call in s carolina. none of the precincts are can project t we president obama will win in the state of vermont. six states where the polls have just closed. we've made calls in two of them. and in the others we can't yet make a call but they'll come. three important senate races among those that have just called. we have three in virginia, democrats are trying to hold tant seat.por for now that race is too close to call between kain and allen. this senate race will give us a lot of information about the way voters were pushed and pulled. there is a third party candidat
national credit rating. the dems were real di to deal. it was the people who brought romney who wouldn't. and now they brought him. does anyone think he's finally going to stand up to them? what makes anyone think he would not dance with the --? that's hardball for now. the ed show starts right now. >> good b evening, americans. coming to you from high atop democracy plaza. 28 hours until the election. thousands of americans voted today as mitt romney's team is trying to talk their way to a championship. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> this is what democracy looks like. team romney thinks they have it all locked up. >> it looks like the map is starting to expand drastically in our favor. >> the spin from the right just keeps oncoming. tonight, richard wolffe and jonathan alter have the latest on a massive day on the campaign trail. >>> plus all the latest on a bizarre day of early voting in florida. the romney campaign finally addresses their lie. and karen finney responds to the righties who blame hurricane sandy for mitt romney's rough finish. >> the hurricane is
affected the national election. in the sense that the romney momentum is temporarily, certainly was temporarily halted. the benghazi thing has been knocked off the front pages, and the president is putting himself in the role of president as head of state, rather than the campaign mode, which i don't think is effective, i think it's the real toss-up and this interruption has helped the president. >> matt -- political harmony before the three. >> chris kiss tee is emotional, reacting in the moment, he really cares about his state and people. he tweeted that the jersey shore, his childhood was gone. this is a very wrenching moment for him as it is for the people who were living through this in new jersey and new york. and the president is doing his job, and it's a time when government has been under assault in the political arena, and it gives the president a chance to show that government can have a positive influence in people's lives. government is working here. the states could not respond fully on their own, they need the help, and so i think this is a moment that i wish we c
-point advantage among women and that's slightly higher than romney's edge among men. the president's job rating sits at 49%. take a look at these numbers. 67% of likely voters approve of his handling of hurricane sandy. haven't seen numbers like that for this president on a single event, of course, going back to bin laden. and we may be seeing a sandy effect in other numbers. when voters are asked which candidate has better leadership qualities, the president -- more now pick the president. two weeks ago mitt romney led in that question, 44% to 40%. this doesn't mean romney doesn't have some things going for him. he's winning independents, the group the president won in 2008. romney leads them now by seven points. and romney leads by five points when voters are asked which candidate is better prepped to create jobs and improve the economy. still, the president continues to have a double digit lead on which candidate will do better at looking 0 out for the middle class. obama leads by 11 points on that economic values question, if you will. so where does this race stand? the best gauge may be th
morning himself, hugo hindgren. >> with only one day left, team romney is going to the kitchen sink and it has the rank smell of desperation. >> talk is cheap, but a record that's real. we can begin a better tomorrow tomorrow. >> he appealed to our votes by saying people should vote out of revenge. we are asking for your vote out of love for country. >> i don't know what he was doing in nevada while people are still being discovered dead in new york. >> the greatest country in the history of the world and our growth is at 1.2%. he should resign. >>. >> first of all the ad is accurate. bill clinton was in pennsylvania talking a about it. >> you're the only two that think it's accurate. >> they figured out that jeep is owned by chrysler then by fiat. so the charge began, the president is working with the italians. few days ago, come out for the irish, and i'm toast. >> new polls show both candidates are neck and neck. the latest and last nbc news/"wall street journal" poll before election day shows the race in a statistical tie nationallyp in ohio the state that may ultimately determi
romney has campaigned their and you seet t clinton there today. no stateher sign that taken for granted when the race is this close. >> let's switch to the romney campaign. just arrivedr has manchester, new hampshire the latest on the final hours of campaigning for the republican nominee. >> mitt romney is headed here to for a late-night rally with kid rocke. every vote counts and a race this close. the latest polls decided this divided. thousands of supporters lined up at george mason university excited northern -- the last 48 hours of the campaign. mitt romney wants to turn this .wing state back to read told these virginia voters difference.ake the he gave one of the final of his presidential campaign. door to a broader future there. waiting for us. i need your vote, i need your work. .alk with me tomorrow is a new beginning. >> he stard the morning in to lynchburgent on in fairfax. he decided to add an airport in new hampshire tonight. the final rally is now scheduled for pittsburg. from thee live tonight rally. they have decided to add ohioer trip back to then on tod before ending t
romney, less taxes, less spending and less government and administration actually takes responsibility for both its excesses and its failures. now, the difference is between the two men on the ballot are very dramatic. without a doubt. only one of them is a leader. let's take a look at brand-new rnc video. >> what is the essential qualities of a leader. >> the leader has an built to see where things are headed before people in genesee it. that vision is not just skill and brilliance but even more their life experience. >> we need to take back america. it's up to you guys. you can make a difference. >> now is the moment where we need to stand up and say, i make my destiny. we deserve better. my children deserve better. my family deserves better. my country deserves better. >> how we're going to restore economic freedom. >> can you win this thing? >> i'm going to win it. >> sean: it's important not to forget what four years of obama's policies have gotten us. economy is joke and we are laughed around the world. all this humor is not set sitting well you the american people. according to
: this is a fox news alert. governor mitt romney is speaking at rally in newport newses, virginia. let's listen. >> he calls it as you know, forward. i call it forewarned. >> the same course we have been on is not going to lead to a better are destination. the same path means $20 trillion in debt passed on to our kids. it means crippling unmany ployment and stagnant take home pay and depressed home values and means a devastated military which we must not allow to happen. and unless we change course are we may actually be looking at another recession. now, in his closing arguments, president obama asked h his supporters to vote for revenge. [booing] >> for revenge. i ask the american people instead to vote for love of country. [ cheers and applause ] >> usa! >> usa! >> usa! >> together we have got to lead america to a better place and we are only -- two days, not three. almost one. we are only two days away from a fresh start. two days away from the first day of a new beginning. my conviction that better days are ahead is not based on promises or hollow rhetoric but on solid plans and proven res
this country for the next 4 years, president obama and governor romney campaigning hard in the swing states, that will decide the outcome of this elect, candidates adding new stops to extent campaign 2 election day. candidates still making their pitches, and what has been one of the longest fiercest and most expensive presidential elects in history. after nearly 2 billion-dollars, more than 600 million by outside groups alone, hundreds of events attended by both candidates, where do we stand in it is the poll say, an absolute dead heat. the swing state of virginia 13 electoral votes as ts to toss u, rasmussen report with governor romney with a 2 point lead, and it looks very close this year, latest survey. shows governor romney pulling into a 47-47 tie with the president, putting keystone state 21 electoral votes termly in play, and obviously if polling is correct, no state more surveyed and visited by candidates than ohio, making 29 campaign starts combined there this year. they are back today, and governor romney will return tomorrow to try to win the state, and race that many expect to d
romney is also racing against the clock, tweaking his argument. and in case you forgot, we've got more than two guys running on tuesday, tonight we'll break down all of the battles, particularly for congress and who will decide control of it and what the next president can get done. good evening from democracy plaza. it's saturday, november 3, 2012. this is a prime time edition of "the daily rundown." we're taking a look at how we got here. presidential elections that aren't close are actually odd. no republican has gotten more than 300 electoral votes since 1988. only four democrats in history have gotten more than 53% of the vote. bottom line, this is 1976 meets 2000 meets 2004. in other words, it's a very close race. so how did we get here? the president began this campaign weighed down by a troubled economy and still faces a jobless rate higher than any incumbent seeking re-election since fdr. in the president's first six months there was a lot of money spent some of it by choice, most of it by need. the wall street bail dpts out, the federal stimulus and the auto bailout. at the t
, president obama won it four years ago, governor romney has won it this time. it is not a surprise, though. we were expecting governor romney to take indiana. kentucky, this is a very red state and governor romney has taken kentucky, as well, tonight. and vermont, a very blue state weighing in early and president obama, abc news, based on the exit polls is ready to project a winner in vermont right now. let's tell you aboutther states. we have too little information to make a projection. georgia, a red state, bill clinton won in 1992, but no other republican or every republican has won since then and south carolina, solid red state, not enough information to project at this point, so -- and virginia, this is a big one, george, and we do not have enough information at this moment. we are watching it every single moment. we'll bring you the news as we have it. >> that is the biggest surprise so far. a must win for mitt romney. the overall map. as you said no big surprises right now. a lot of votes outstanding but the polls are closing. the race could not be closer. both 2012 stavote 2012 sta
, this is the state that will likely decide the presidential election. governor romney knows that only too well that no republican has won the white house without winning ohio and the race right now in ohio is close to a dead heat. let's look at the two latest polls. first, our own cnn/orc poll of likely voters shows president obama with a three point lead. now that is inside the statistical margin of error. so that's about as close as it can get. and nbc "wall street journal" poll gives the president a six point lead in ohio. a little better for obama. still very close. now obama may be the top prize for the candidates right now l are other important battleground states. we'll take through over the course of the next hour in a way that only cnn can. john avalon and i traveled more than 1800 miles on cnn's battleground bus tour as the race for the white house reaches its conclusion. no mat wrer i ter where i go, t economy is the most important issue in this election. i've been traveling with john avalon. he joins me now as does my good friend christine romans. she joins me from washington. jim
. >>> romney wins in the state of north carolina. now, to -- the states that have just closed. the state of california goes to the democrat, not surprisingly, obama as -- the polls have just closes in california. nothing reporting yet but we are 100% sure california goes to obama. the state of washington not surprisingly to the democrat obama. the state of idaho, goes to romney. 91 votes to 52 votes, we are sure of ourselves around here and then the state of hawaii, good evening to you and you have elected -- you have given your votes to obama. now to the important states which are still undecide. that will begin with the state of virginia. a state that we have been watching all night long. now three fourths of all precincts reporting. romney with a slight lead but still to close to call according to the decision team. the state of ohio which we thought would be the big teller of the night, obama at the moment at least has opened up a lead but only two thirds of all precincts reporting and ohio is still to close to call as is iowa, six votes up for grabs, important state in th
she likes the excitement of election day and in oregon, voted for romney and proud to say i convinced two others to do so as well. >> paul: this week on the journal editorial report, the presidential campaign against back on track in the wake of superstorm sandy. headed into the final days, we'll look at the final arguments and 33 seats up for grabs in the senate and the power could hinge on a few key races and tell you which to watch. what they could mean for taxpayers, school kids and organized labor. welcome to the journal editorial report. i'm paul gigot. the presidential campaign kicked back into high gear late in week in the wake of hurricane sandy with president obama and mitt romney making their final pitches to swing state voters. >> governor romney has been using all his talents as a salesman to dress up these very same policies that failed our country so badly. the very same policies we've been cleaning up after for the past four years. >> attacking me does not create an agenda for him. we actually have a plan to get this economy going. >> paul: and joining the pa
